Dreams are complex phenomenons that inspire researchers and scientists to think of their origins and operations. They reflect thoughts, inner affairs, desires, and intentions in the form of a story. Although studies have been conducted to realize the intentions and forms of dreams, there are many questions around dream’s operations and processes; the questions such as how the power of psychology generates dreams, and what are the main operations that shape and form the content of a dream? This study is a self-empirical analysis of dreams contents based on the montage, a primary artistic operation people use for creating artworks. For dream’s content analysis, they have been compared against the dreamer’s real facts of awakening state. This study is an innovative way of analyzing dreams’ contents. The study also provides a quantified result based on primary montages helping to understand how a dreamer generates his/her dreams.
